Dior Vernis in Black Sequins 905: Review and Photos

October 30, 2008
Dior Vernis in Black Sequins ($19)

What it is: A black nail lacquer with silver flecks. Limited edition and only at Sephora!

What it does:
Dior Vernis in Black Sequins gives nails a celestial shimmer. The raven black lacquer contains silver flecks that make your nails looks like a starry night—they glitter. Dior’s fast-drying, diamond-hard, chip-resistant formula makes sure this limited-edition varnish lasts.

I hadn’t even noticed Dior’s Black Sequins up on the Sephora site until a couple of readers requested that review it if I had the chance, but since I’m always up for testing out pretty black nailpolishes I was only too happy to oblige! I checked multiple Sephora stores in the city and they were all sold out of this polish (so get on it if you want since it is limited!) so I had to resort to ordering online!

Black Sequins is a true black nail laquer with tons of tiny little silver flecks interspersed throughout. The effect really is like that of a starry night–well if starry nights were actually visible in my area. Since the flecks aren’t chunky at all the overall effect is subtle and definitely more eye-catching in brighter lighting than it is in a dim room, but all in all I love it! The finish isn’t completely smooth due to the glitter, but it’s absolutely and positively not the chunky glittery feeling you get from a lot of glitter polishes. While I don’t get much use out of my Chanel Black Satin, I know this will be gone before I know it!

As for the lasting power, well I’ve only had this on my nails for a night or so, but having been a fan of Dior polishes for well over 10 years I can attest to their great quality. They dry super quickly, have great shine, and best of all are the longest lasting polishes I’ve ever tried. I always manage to chip my manicures in a day or two with other polishes (Essie, Chanel, OPI, etc.) but my Dior polishes last and last.

Okay onto the photos! I did my nails last night in the dark so please excuse the stray marks and messiness (and the not so great photos). I’ll be fixing it up later today!

Like I mentioned above this polish is limited edition and seems to be selling out quickly so head on over to Sephora and check it out for yourself if you’re interested!
